I really love using Square to process payments. Cheap and frictionless.

We are getting word that Apple is preparing to release a television product. It will have a 3.5-inch multi-touch display, 960-by-640-pixel resolution at 326 pip and will sync and play all your iTunes content!

A great article explaining why Apple is, on some days, the biggest company on the planet.

http://www.businessweek.com/printer/magazine/apples-supplychain-secret-hoard-lasers-11032011.html

When people have asked me about my feelings on the future of Apple with Tim Cook at the helm, I have stated my belief that the great things Apple has done for its bottom-line – lowered prices, increased profitability, improved reliability – are a direct result of Cook's Operations leadership.

Operations are a boring story, except when you see these numbers. I knew about the $1.25 billion flash memory deal, but I had not considered how spending $40 million on lasers could give you a leg up on the competition. And spending $50 million to assure you can ship all your new iMacs, and effectively locking the competition out of using air freight during the holidays? Classy.
The iPhone maker spends lavishly on all stages of the manufacturing process, giving it a huge operations advantage

Apple's success is as much due to operational excellence as it is to creativity.

Here is an interesting chart regarding Android device updates.

http://theunderstatement.com/post/11982112928/android-orphans-visualizing-a-sad-history-of-support

Most Android devices just don't get updates and worse, phones like the Samsung Behold II already 2 major updates behind when they are released. Outside of super-nerds, people who buy Android phones JUST DON'T CARE about their phone OS, because to them it is just that, a phone. It makes calls and sends SMS and MMS messages. It even has the weather! But many of these 500k activations a week are on phones so crippled by vendors that they barely escape the 'feature phone' classification.

Android has huge adoption numbers, but so did Symbian phones 5 years ago. No one was getting all excited about that platform. It was a utility. A thing that was cheap for hardware manufacturers to slap on to their junky plastic phones.

Android, for all the excitement it riles up in tech pundits (who, lets face it, don't represent real people), is a commodity OS that does not engage users. Which is fine. After all, they're just phones.

I think I can solve both of those issues: Flash.

I find LinkedIn's behavior wherein you can view and reply to a message but are prompted to login before the message is sent to be strange. Perhaps only because it does not match the typical behavior of having to login before getting ANY access. But I feel that LinkedIn is using the RIGHT behavior.

Thoughts?

Dave Winer weighs in on the Steve Jobs book. He finds it hard to read. I found the post hard to read (please proof-read before publishing!) but interesting. I have not yet cracked my copy because I am concerned about the slant, though Dave was much closer to that world than I ever was. http://scripting.com/stories/2011/10/27/theJobsBook.html?utm_source=sendgrid.com&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=website
